The Los Angeles Rams listed four players on the team’s injury report on Friday, January 25. Three of them sat out practice.
Kicker Greg Zuerlein, safety Blake Countess, and punter Johnny Hekker were listed as “DNP” (did not play) on the Rams’ latest injury report. Running back C.J. Anderson returned to action and was listed as “full” participation after missing Thursday’s practice.
Zuerlein, or “Legatron,” the Rams’ NFC Championship-winning kicker, has been seen in a walking boot from a reported foot strain to his left foot. It doesn’t appear to be the result of the previous game against the Saints and not perceived as anything too serious.
Countess is also dealing with a foot injury, but there is no news as to the cause or severity of this.
Anderson missed time due to an “illness,” which is also the reason Hekker missed practice. Head Coach Sean McVay does not seem concerned. He spoke confidently that at this point, everyone on the team will be ready to play in the Rams’ upcoming Super Bowl matchup against the New England Patriots.
“We don’t anticipate anybody really missing any time,” McVay stated when asked about the upcoming status of these players and the entire Rams team.
